Day 1 – Dublin – Bunratty Castle – The Cliffs of Moher

Bunratty Castle and Folk Park

We take a short visit to Bunratty Castle, which was completed in 1425 and, after many years of neglect, has been restored to its former glory. There is also a folk park here depicting 19th century rural life and some of the buildings in the village were dismantled at various locations in the region and rebuilt brick by brick at their present location.

Cliffs of Moher

We visit the majestic Cliffs of Moher – among the highest sea cliffs in Western Europe.

The Burren

We take the coast road to Galway with time for photos along the Burren. This is a national park and the word Burren comes from the Irish Language – it means ‘rocky place’. It is a unique lunar landscape of limestone. Today the Burren is noted for its diverse Flora with few parallels elsewhere in Ireland or indeed, Europe. As time permits, we will make a short stop here for photographs.

Galway Bay

Take the coast road to Galway with time for photos of the stunning views.

Day 2 – The Aran Islands

Dun Aonghasa

Your tour of Inis Mór includes stops at the ‘Seven Churches, Dún Aonghusa and Kilronan for lunch, which is the small village on the island. For many, the highlight of the tour is the pre-Christian fort of Dún Aonghusa, with spectacular cliffs on the western side and unspoilt views of the Atlantic Ocean. The spoken language on the Aran Islands is Irish, but don’t worry; the locals will be more than happy to talk to you in English. Please always be back at the bus at the time specified by your guide.

Day 3 – Connemara and Kylemore Abbey – Dublin

Connemara National Park & Visitor Centre

We visit Connemara – one of Ireland’s Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) regions – which has the most breathtaking views.

Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Garden

Kylemore Abbey – an 18th century castle – is now owned by the Benedictine nuns who run an excellent pottery & gift shop and restaurant. We stop here for lunch.
